Tsetserleg [garden] is a beautiful city in the foothills of the Khangai mountains and it is the aimgiin töv [~provincial center] of Arkhangai Aimag. Highlights of our time included visits to secondary schools, a youth center, and the “Flom” center for students with disabilities. With the latter two visits in particular we met some amazing educators who are doing great work, and got the chance to tell them about grants they could apply for through the embassy, as well as exchange opportunities for their students.
This is my friend, Joe, who has spent the last year in Mongolia on a Fulbright. Not only is he an incredible musician, teacher, and lenguist but he has a great photographic eye. Now just to get myself to Mongolia.
